Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our Exposed! listings (if available), usually marked with a green badge. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.

The Voigtlander 50mm f/1.1 Nokton for Leica
The Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.1 Lens is a high speed aspherical lens for M mount cameras. The lens is constructed with 7 elements in 6 groups, and has a minimum focusing distance of 3.28’ (1m). It features an all-metal lens barrel construction, and a 10 bladed aperture diaphragm which creates pleasing out-of-focus highlights. Click-stop aperture movements at half-stop intervals makes subtle adjustments in exposure or depth-of-field easy.The lens is constructed with two aspherical surfaces and one SD (super-low dispersion) glass element.
Steve Huff's Take
The Voigtlander 50 Nokton f/1.1 is a terrific lens. It is an “artistic” lens that can give you some very creative looking images. It does have some f/1.1 magic and is well worth the cost. It is built well, focuses smooth and easy, and balances well on any Leica M camera. If you crave a super fast lens, this is as close as you can get to the classic Leica Noctilux. Try it, I think you will like it!
(Because Roger has limited rangefinder capabilities, we’ve asked Steve Huff, who provides excellent reviews at SteveHuffPhoto to pinch hit.)
